Fnatic and LG are matched up against each other in the Group stage match of the IEM Katowice to be held on the 2nd of March 2016 at 15:00 CET.
Fnatic are a very skilled team, currently ranked number one in the world. Fnatic’s play style suits puggy maps. They win almost all their 1 on 1 duels and then just carry forward from the advantage. Fnatic however have been hyped up too much by the fans. Some of their matches are quite close in terms of the scorelines especially on LAN. Fnatic is the better team, but considering the odds and the actual skill gap being too small a low bet on LG would be smart.
LG have been known to be perform badly on the first day of tournaments. However considering that they would be playing only in the first day, there is not really any room for error for the team. LG have defeated Fnatic on Fnatic’s better maps such as Cache and Dust2 before. The team itself is centered around Fallen. But despite the fact that Fallen has not been performing on par with his star level recently, the team still has managed very good results including reaching the finals several times. LG is definitely slated to be the underdogs in this matchup especially considering how hyped Fnatic are.
The Prediction : 65%-35% Fnatic
The Bet : Low on LG
